Her Majesty The Queen with The Commanding Officer, The RCM, The Adjutant


Foreword by The Commanding Officer On 15th October 1975 The Life Guards flag was lowered in Lothian Barracks DETMOLD for the last time, anyway for a while, and our tour as a Chieftain Regiment came to an end. On reflection, a nostalgic moment which finished one of the more turbulent periods in the Regiment's history. In the four years from 10th September 1971 to 15th October 1975the Regiment carried out a series of very different tasks. For the first time ever we became a tank regiment, learnt the skills of the 120mm gun, stabilised turrets, combat teams, and so on. Within months of starting this new way of life we were told to put our tanks away and become infantry for an emergency tour in East Belfast. 1973 and we were back with our tanks running a battle group on a live firing exercise area on the prairies of Canada. This tactical training incorporating infantry, artillery, and engineers as well as ourselves all firing live ammunition on thirty to forty mile battle runs, was interesting and exciting. Troops calling for gunner fire support learnt never to be casual with the grid references. 105mm HE at close range, even in a Chieftain, can be unnerving! Again, just as we were getting used to wheeling our fifty ton monsters around the countryside, back we went to Ulster. This time as mounted infantry in the beautiful, but notorious, countryside around Armagh and Dungannon. 1975 and another trip to

Suffield, Canada, and then conversion back to the armoured reconnaissance role. During all this of course we still did exercises in Germany, guards on special ammunition sites, trade courses, adventure training, and the normal day to day tasks of a regiment. You may ask what we gained from these rapidly changing roles and I would not deny that from a purely armoured viewpoint we lacked experience in tank soldiering. However, I believe we proved that with hard work, enormous enthusiasm and the acceptance of responsibility at the very lowest level one can achieve a very high degree of competence whether on the Canadian prairie, Belfast street or Detmold drill square. This gives us all a self confidence that has helped to keep us firmly at the head of our profession. Now that we are back in Windsor, we are looking forward to seeing many old members of the Regi ment at Combermere. 1976 is to be another energetic year for us. B Squadron start by a tour in Ulster and leave just after Christmas for four months. C Squadron will be in Norway in February and March, and A Squadron leave for a six month tour in Cyprus also in March. However, some, if not all of us, will be around and hope people will visit us in the months to come.

Command Squadron REGIMENTAL ORDERLY ROOM This year once again the staff of the "nerve centre" can claim to have put in quite a few hours in the wide open spaces with the usual trips to Hohne and Soltau being spiced with a dash of Suffield (for those who were lucky enough to be selected!) . After being in Germany for 4 years, the Chief Clerk finally managed to get to Hohne for Annual firing, gaining the impression that it was not as difficult as all that! But of course when the Regiment moved to Soltau he returned to Detmold and left LCoH Winter, Lcpl McKenzie and Tpr Brady to brave the elements. CoH Dugdale had the dubious pleasure of travelling to Soltau the day before the Regiment returned to Detmold for the sole purpose of giving Command Squadron assistance in striking Regimental Headquarters canvas. It is suspected that he was "dug out" by a very tall Warrant Officer. On a previous visit to Soltau LCoH Radford and his merry men were tasked to build a corral where his experience at Stoney Castle came to the fore. One more visit was paid to Soltau by CoH Dugdale, LCoH Radford, Tprs Evans and Smith who constituted the Battle Group Orderly Room and as such became destined to go to Suffield. They were lucky not to be put in charge of the Soya stoves but instead were given exercise by the Adjutant in the form of Compass marches. On this occasion the experience of CoH Dugdale rose to the fore and he excelled (and surprised) himself by travelling so fast which may have been as a result of a few well-timed blank rounds fired by the Regimental Corporal Major. Our Orderly Room for the Battle Group training in Canada was in fact slightly changed in as much as Tpr (now Lcpl) Bolsover replaced Tpr Smith (now at Regimental Headquarters Household Cavalry). There is hardly enough room for us to recount all the "war stories" that came back. LCoH Radford went on a hitchhiking tour to a destination he refuses to divulge; Tprs Evans and Bolsover disappeared into the dust of Montana with some mates in Command Squadron - and they are not saying what happened either; CoH Dugdale also went Montana way in a huge hired car accompanied by members of the pay staff and the PTI, Staff Sergeant McQuilkin. The tales they tell are never less than "hairy" although one gets the impression that the hair was long and more often than not, blonde! CoH Dugdale made a heroic effort in trying to 10

save his camera from breaking when he dropped it, only to fall 30 feet himself narrowly avoiding landing in a waterfall. In mid-July we were again visited by the BAOR Documentation Team. After a great deal of hard work by all concerned especially Co H Dugdale who became sl ight: Iy greyer in the process, the Regiment achieved a grading of "Good". An extremely satisfactory way to finish our tour in BAOR. Tpr Lawless is to be congratulated on attaining a B pass on his B3 after only 2% weeks. LCoH Hale also deserves congratulations on his recent promotion as does Lcpl Bolsover, the latter having left us to become A Squadron clerk, replacing Lcpl Whetman who has transferred to the RMP. We have said farewell to LCoH Winter who has gone to try the patience of the Superintending Clerk at the Guards Depot, also to Tpr Evans who has gone to B Squadron to replace Lcpl Jepson who has returned to the fold. The Regimental Orderly Room now comprises of ORSQMC Cherrington. CoH Dugdale, LCoH Radford, Lcpl McKenzie, L~pl Jepson, Tpr Brady, Tpr Lawless, Tpr Timms (when he can be found) and one day Tpr Brewster (when we can get the Guards Depot to part with him).

THE RECCE TROOP The Reece Troop has had a most enenjoyable and successful nine months. The winter saw the Troop firing at Sennelager and Hohne, the latter followed by the inevitable Soltau. Spring witnessed exercise "Long Night" an FTX with the German Brigade at Augustdorf and the early summer found us in three feet of snow in Canada. Unfortunately during the winter period many commanders were away on courses and various composite crews were formed. The Troop lacked, perhaps, the drive that people have come to expect from them and the results at Hohne were only just above average. After Soltau the Troop returned to normal with Mr. Hearson returning from Bovington and SQMC Hutchings from Sandhurst. The German exercise was most worthwhile, not only did it give us a chance to shake down as a Troop, but also gave the Commanders a chance to work independently. The exercise began for us at night, as a series of OP's had to be produced, and dawn followed with a river crossing and an advance to contact. We were ably supported by the REME, an example of their efficiency being when two Ferrets

were bogged in and the Germans sent¡ Leopard ARVs to recover them. Suftl\ to say that they both got stuck, but the REME Bedford, which saved the Ii After six days with the Germans \ Troop Leader was bi-lingual in Austral; as the Germans had provided an Austral I " ~n~erpreter. After the FTX the Troop Ie JOined the Regiment for Battle Grau; Training at Soltau. This proved masc worthWhile, and jolted our memories I! Battle Group Tactics. The vehicles were now washed down serviced and locked away prior to the PR E inspection and our trip to Canada. LCoH Jewell and Tpr Morris left fOI Canada early to act as our advance party The rest of us arrived 12 days later. The dramas caused by the weather are dealwith elsewhere; suffice to say, that we encountered all four seasons in the space of six weeks. Unable to go on exercise as planned, the Commanding Officer sent the Troop to Fort Wainright, a round trip of three hundred miles in three days. Our REME support, travelling in "a duce and a half", counted a total of sixteen bends ~n the trip Northwards. We slept in camp sites en route and in one town, Charlamain, we entertained the local schoolchildren for h~lf an hour. This was a most enjoyable triP, and acted as an excellent introduction to Canada. The exercise itself, when the Battle Group eventually got out, went very smoothly. The Troop was split so that two sections went to each combat team with the Troop Leader co-ordinating on the centre line. Troop and individual skills were tested to the limit. The Troop did extremely well and saved many disasters by their efficient and speedy reactions. Map reading, though difficult at first, proved relatively easy as soon as we had confidence in our compasses. The weather helped to accl imatize those of us who are going to Cyprus and made a pleasant change to the "Dripping Beech Woods" and birds on exercise in Germany. Canada proved to be an excellent high spot on which to terminate activities in BAOR.


Headquarters Squadron No 0 e could possibly say that life in Headquarters Squadron has been dull since we returned from Ulster. ';~:ithin days of returning to Germany we \¡.:ere back at Soltau, if anything more muddy and unpleasant than ever. Just to liven everyone up the EME, Captain Snodgrass (his real name), organised a cross-country run which he also managed to win. Back at Detmold we had to start preparing for the annual Fitness for Role inspection. This took the form of a parade, inspection, and march past the Divisional Commander, Major General Gow followed, for Headquarters Squadron, by our annual BE test. Major Boyt had volunteered the Squadron for th is knowing that he would have left the Army by then. As with most Life Guard rehearsals, the final dress rehearsal was an unmitigated disaster, but as always on the day we were brilliant, number one division of Headquarters Squadron undoubtedly being the best on parade. After th is we got down to the serious business of Christmas, since the first party was on the 2nd December and we did not go on leave until the 20th December, it got very serious by the end! Brick Hanging was, as ever, a terrific success. LCoH Gunning has still not fully recovered from it. He dived over a table and broke his neck.

one was cold and snowy. As usual the Regiment would have come to a grinding halt without us, as usual they would not admit this. The OM(E)'s Staff discovered Cherry Brandy, except for Trooper Smith who discovered sex, which made life more interesting for all. No one can remember quite how many 'Yankee' requests they supplied, but all the other OM(E)'s in the area breathed a sigh of relief when Captain Greaves left Soltau for the last time. The MTO went along with the Squadron Leader to give him some expert advice about a polo pony he was thinking of buying,unfortunately they had lunch with Captain Rodger at Hohne. Each time the MTO fell off, (he managed it three times) he said "thank goodness no one knows about this, it would cost me a fortune!" At various periods during the winter we managed to get men away ski-ing. Tpr Pullen even managed to go twice. Lcpl Griffiths also went and felt no pain, although he did have the grace to say that the skis were not strong enough for him. Canada was our next stop. It would be uncharitable and unprintable to say what ones first reactions were to Suffield. There was no doubt that we had arrived there at least three weeks too early. What part of the prairie was not under snow was under water. Headquarters Squadron made the best of a bad job and went down to the

The ROMC and CoH Perry lived in luxury at the ammo point, which they shared with a large herd of wild boar and LCpl Griffiths; also the Squadron Leader - if he could not find a cup of coffee anywhere else. One Soltau is much Iike another, and the only difference between th is years two was that one was cold and dry and

Cyprus Hills Park for three days of 'fun in the sun'. At least there the snow was deep enough to provide real enjoyment. LCoH Mitton seemed to spend most of his time digging-out Duce and a Halves, but then each to his own. Once we were allowed on to the range Headquarters Squadron were hard at it as usual. The OM, Captain Charles, ran the base end and the MTO ran a DP halfway up the range. The roads/tracks were awful and it says much for the MT drivers that most of the very clapped out Duce and a Halves were still in one piece when we left. Whatever ones memories are of Canada one outstanding feature will be the food. The Master Cook and his team excelled themselves producing non-stop steaks, salmon, and on one occasion, liquorice ice cream.

It takes all these people to cook one dog Medicine Hat saw a lot of the Squadron and even more of some of it's officers. The SCM fearing a repetition of Soltau refused to let TOMC Johnson show him such well known spots as the Cinabou. Some of the Squadron stayed behind for two weeks for adventure training. Tragically this period was marred by the loss of Lcpl McKeown who drowned whilst canoeing. He will be sadly missed both for his cooking and his cheerfulness. After Canada the SCM, Corporal Major Batey, left us for his first love, horses and Knightsbridge. In his place came Corporal Major Hatto who soon left to pound the square at Pi rbright. The summer has been spent converting back to armoured cars and thinking about Windsor. Now that the move is actually upon us no one but SOMC Alderson can actually believe the long-awaited day is nearly here. Our only regret is that we will be leaving beh ind the majority of the LAD who have been loyal members of Headquarters Squadron for the past four years.

A Squadron 1975 was a year of change for 'A' Squadron particularly among the junior troopers. On return from Northern Ireland each Sabre Troop could only produce a solitary 'old s.oldier'. This meant that troop training had to be particularly intensive with several training exercises on Soltau. One of the compensations was that thE; Squadron Fund made a huge profit from the Canteen. I n one way or another most of the Squadron have spent nearly two and a half months under canvas th is year. We have held two very successful discotheques and managed to attract far more 'talent' than usual. Apart from this, there have been several 'Happy Hours', notably to send off Squadron Corporal Major Wardell, who left in February to take charge of a married families patch in Osnabruck. We will miss that penetrating voice and his great devoti on to the Squadron. To get back to 'Happy Hours', some members of the Squadron have expressed dissatisfaction at the lack of home-made entertainment at these affairs. The loudest complaints come from surviving members of the now-defunct, but once dreaded, 'Committee' who saw to it that everybody got a fair chance to sing. What is it about an innocent chorus of 'We call upon so & so to sing us a song etc. etc'. that makes most officers wish they could curl up and die? I can confidently predict that the NAAFI at Windsor will soon be seething with an old fashioned Squadron 'Smoker'.

Apart from German training the Squadron, together with RHO and B went as part of a Life Guards Battle Group to Canada where the weather prevented us from carrying out some of the training. This meant that everybody got extra R and R which was used to good effect to travel all over Canada and parts of America. A large number took advantage of a bus trip to Great Falls, Montana to see for themselves the town where women far outnumber men. For some the temptation to stay forever in this Nirvana was overcome with difficulty, however the Squadron returned complete to Germany. Elsewhere in the Magazine there is a fuller description of our Canadian adventures. Mr. Hamilton, LCoH Belza and Tpr Burton braved the skies and completed the sport Parachute course at Sennelager in July, and the rest of the summer was filled with conversion training. The squadron is going to Cyprus for six months from March 1976 where we should be able to do some old fashioned soldiering (water skiing).

Knightsbridge and Mr. Forbes-Cockell (3 Tp) returned from Pirbright before Christ¡ mas. Captain Joll and Mr. Cayzer (SHO) have both left the army. Many others have come and gone, but the essential' A' Squadron spi rit has been preserved. At the time of writing the Squadron is carrying out conversion firing, being firmly kept in order by the Gunnery Instructors, CoH Daysmith and CoH Willis, aided and abetted by SOMC Keeyes on loan from HO Squadron.

Those who have left the Squadron this year include nearly all the hierarchy; Major S. V. Gilbart-Denham has taken over the Mounted Squadron and is succeeded by Major J. R. Bedells. SCM Lawson has taken over from SCM Wardell who has left to go on the Long Service List and SOMC Hatto is waiting for another drill course having sprained his ankle at Pirbright. Among the small fry, Mr. Adderley (1 Tp) has also gone to

B Squadron

The Colonel, with (left to right); CoH Nicklin, CoH Craig, CoH Shaw and Staff Sergeant Dol/imore The last Christmas in Germany with its round of parties and Squadron Smokers was just as festive as normal. The final year in Germany was clearly going to be a busy one. I n the year ahead the Squadron had to prepare, for Battle Group training in Canada, convert to an armoured car Squadron and train for Northern Ireland. This sounds simple on paper but in practice it was to be quite an undertaking. The year's training started with Regimental firing at Hohne. SOMC Woodland, CoH Craig and CoH Finney provided the Squadron's instructing team. Gunnery I nstructors are a breed of their own; as soon as the word gunnery is mentioned, they break into a sweat, they jump up and down, their voices go up an octave, and suddenly everyone is forced to listen to them. The weather at Hohne was relatively kind, thanks to Padre Roberts,

and B Squadron shone as usual by achieving a 'B+' grading. Our secret weapon of course was the Regimental Gunnery Officer, Captain De Ritter. Troop training followed immediately at Soltau. On the move from Hohne to Soltau, the Squadron passed some other sweating faces. Tpr Johnson and a few other keep-fit friends led by the Adjutant had decided to walk the twenty five kilometres. The weather, cold as it was, did little to hamper 'Battling B' Squadron. Troop training passed without notable incident, however only a fortnight later, the Regiment returned again to muddy pastures of Pointed Wood, Twitters Alley, Victor and Zulu. On this occasion, the Squadron joined forces with a platoon or two from A Company 2 Oueens and sometimes with a troop from 39 Field Squadron RE. This final week of PreCanada training was extremely beneficial.

Apart from a few senior barrels facing the wrong way and an excellent demonstration on how to demolish an obstacle, the training continued without further amusing incident. The feud between the SCM and the SOMC took on a more alarming phase with the introduction of air rifles, but it is believed that really they are good friends. At last the Pre-Canada training came to an end. The task now was to clean up the tanks for hand-over to the Blues and Royals in the Autumn. The moment for our move to Canada at the end of April arrived and in spite of the expected delays at Gutersloh, the Squadron was at last bound in a VC10, for the prairies. It is thought few members of the Squadron are considering the possibility of emigrating to Iceland. In spite of the cod war, Keflavick was perhaps the most God forsaken place anyone had ever seen. 13


The GI's, numbering only two were in no mood to speak to anyone and it was hardly surprising. The Arctic Icebergs were the only sight of interest during the journey.

which was most impressive after the prairies. The remainder of the Squadron were shipped off in coaches to various places of interest and beauty, one of which was Great Falls.

The first impressions of Canada were not typical of the whole of that fine country, Calgary cannot be described as the prettiest of towns. The semi-desert, named prairie, is hardly inviting and Camp Crowfoot would not put Butlins to shame. Jet-lag proved quite a problem on the first few days. There is nothing worse than waking up at four in the morning feeling fresher than one has felt for years and then feel ing ready for bed at SIX In the evening. The advance party had done an excellent job but the tanks were not as good as expected. Regrettably the Suffield training area was too wet to take tanks for the first ten days and so the Battle Group having prepared for Battle was eventually sent off on R & R for four days. Medicine Hat, our local town thirty miles away, was a fairly typical North American mid-western town. The Squadron frequented the nu merous bars and was surprised at the relatively low price of beer. Some of the more enterprising members of the Squadron hired cars for their R & R and vanished into the American deserts, the rocky mountains and other strange places. Mr. Bossom made Las Vegas, a round trip of 3,000 miles. The Squadron Leader tried to go fishing in Yellow Stone Park, but he chose the wrong company and forgot his marshmallows (bait) and so was unsuccessful. The Rockie Mountains were relatively beautiful. Having a sort of stark attraction

At last the training area was fit for walking and the Squadron started a day's hike around it, visiting various stands which included canoeing across a lake six inches deep and pulling out Volkswagon Beetles from a bog. Battle Group training commenced soon after and on the whole was a great success. One day was spent firing live Sabot which was perhaps the most exhilarating tank Gunnery anyone had experienced. The night shoot would have put the best fireworks display to shame and actually proved that B Squadron can fire their guns as well at night as they can in day time. The time in Canada was at last running out and after the successful hand-over of the tanks to the next Battle Group (with as little haggling as possible) the Squadron spent four days on ranches in the local area (within a radius of 100 miles). At last the prairie was beginning to come to life. The place was teeming with wild life of all kinds. Gophers, Wild Duck, Deer, Jackals and countless other creatures made what had been a desert only th ree weeks before, a beautiful place. Unfortunately, no trees sprang up, but nevertheless, trees would look out of place there. Working on ranches was a very different kind of life from farming in England. Mr. Mileham, Mr. Bossom, CoH Denton and CoH Finney learnt how to do open surgery on heifers under the instruction of the local member of Parliament.

After Canada the Squadron started on conversion training back to armoured cars. They knew by now that they were off to Northern I rei and in early 1976. Ferrets and Saladins are pleasing sights after Chieftain and so enormous enthusiasm was put into the conversion courses. The Annual PR E in preparation for the handover during the second week in September provided a great deal of hard work. Just before the inspection, Trooper Lewis, so surprised to see his Troop Leader on the Tank Park, reversed into another tank, saving the LAD another tiresome job by straightening out the barrel again. B Squadron started Northern Ireland training almost immediately it returned to Windsor. Flack Jackets, riot guns, VCPs (Vehicle Check Points), loading bays and other Internal Security expressions were on everyone's lips again. B Squadron can now, at last, look back on four years of achievement in Germany, in Canada and the French Riviera. Three Squadron Leaders have come and gone during this time. The Squadron has said its sad farewell to its Battl ing Squad ron Leader. Major Harcourt-Smith and they wish him success at the Staff College. Major Lawson now takes h is place and the Squadron welcomes him as their leader for Northern I reland and beyond. M .. ch ground has to be covered before January, but not a moment of drinking time will be lost over Chnstmas.


C Squadron Member; of the squadron have had a very aried year, ranging from tank troop training at Soltau to Scorpion Gunnery in the \~oLlntai ns of Northern Norway. The year started with Regimental gunnery at Hohne where the squadron achieved a high standard, particularly in the all important fire and movement exercises. LCpl Mullens' new gloves proved to be a great hel p and he fou nd th ings on the ranges that he did not even know existed on his previous visit. Immediately after gunnery camp the squadron split up and started on its conversion to the armoured recce role. One part went to Soltau to act as enemy to A and B squad rons during their pre-Canada training. It was while on this training that CS 32B found itself in a somewhat unenviable position and Corporal Major Payne had a rather rude awakening in the early hours of the morning when 'friends' visited him! The remainder of the squadron left their tanks behind and returned to England where they joined A Squadron of The Blues and Royals for Exercise HardfalJ in Norway. The aim being to obtain firsthand experience of the Arctic before taking over the AMF(L) role from A Squadron, not that we were completely without experience as the squadron had the same role when we were last in Windsor three years previously. In fact there was a certain amount of doubt in some minds as to whether A Squadron could have managed without our assistance!

Lcpl Powell and Tpr Hoskins were looking a little green. The only really noteworthy incident was Lieut 0' Ambrumenil's announcement to give up smoking. Much to everybody's astonishment and to the detriment of the Squadron Leader's pocket, he was actually successful. The first glimpse of Norway was one of a cold, grey, jagged coastline of snow covered mountains coming down to the sea, with no visible evidence of any sort of habitation. However, early the following morning we entered Trondheim Fjord and dawn saw us coming ashore in Trondheim. From there we drove to Rinlierett Camp near Levanger, where we were to be based for the next month.

LCpl McBride has gone away to think about the problem.

CoH Norman and CoH Milne in Norway

A good Hull-down position

After a period of initial training in Windsor, we boarded a flat-bottomed boat and departed for Norway. Luckily we had a reasonably cal m fou I' day crossing, although there was an occasion when

That month was spent doing survival training, driver training, shooting and ski-ing. Corporals of Horse Allan and Milne found out that perhaps they were not of Olympic ski-ing standard and Cpl

Mullen decided that the only safe way :0 travel on snow was on snow shoes. It is interesting to note that the officers ski team of five representing The Blues and Royals against the local Norwegian Infantry training Regiment, consisted of three Life Guards! One of these was an old friend we were all delighted to work with again. Surgeon Lieutenant Colonel Stewart. Out of the month we spent one week at Jherkin Ranges which, by reputation, has the most inhospitable climatic conditions in Norway. Throughout our short stay there the sun shone and we all came away with good suntans. While at Jherkin the two Squadron Leaders, the Commanding Officer of The Blues and Royals and CoH Norman found time to sample a spot of local fishing. This entailed drilling a hole through five feet of ice. After that small problem had been solved a weighted line with some tinned fish on the hook was dangled through the hole with surprisingly successful results; even Colonel Boucher who was somewhat sceptical about the whole enterprise contributed to the bag. Cpls Powell and Mullen can testify as to the tasti ness of the trout that were caught. The main reason for ou I' being at Jherkin was to fire 76mm and guided weapons. Cpl McBride successfully tried his hand at the latter and Trooper Windibank did well on his first Scorpion shoot. Shortly after returning from Jherkin it was time to board the boat again and begin the journey back to BAOR. In Germany we found the remainder of the Regiment preparing to set off for Canada. C Squadron remained in Detmold and began converting from Chieftain trades to Scorpion trades. This conversion training continued right through to September, when preparation for the hand over to The Blues and Royals began. Also in September twelve of the Squadron again went to join The Blues and Royals, this time in Turkey, for an AMF(L) Exercise. After a varied year in which individuals in the squadron have had an interesting time, though the squadron has had little opportunity to function normally, we look forward to our return to Windsor. The next few months see one AM F (L) exercise in England, another in Norway, Gunnery and GW firing and any number of smaller commitments. We were sorry to see Corporal Major Payne depart in June, but wish him every success in the future, and we welcome Corporal Major Reynolds back to C Squadron.


The Life Guards Mounted Squadron 1975 has proved an interesting and varied year. Apart from the normal run of ceremonial duties in London the Regiment was required in July to produce 3 Escorts for the King of Sweden. This required moving the whole regiment to Edinburgh. This last happened 4 years ago, which meant, luckily, that there were very few comments such as "We didn't do it this way last time, sir". The clean Scottish air gave the whole regiment a new lease of life. Away from the cares of Queens Life Guard and other London duties, the troops were managed on the principle of one man one horse. The riding in the hills in the most perfect weather with trumpet calls sounding in the still air gave a new meaning to the routine of cavalry manceuvres. The result was three exceptional escorts. On returning to London, after the leave period the squadron prepared once again to visit Stoney Castle for summer camp, where as always all members of the Squadron and the horses had a thoroughly enjoyable two weeks. This year we have been most fortunate in being able to send each troop away twice. In the spring two troops experienced the exceptional hospitality of Mr. Douglas Bunn at Hickstead, the remaining troop, one troop, went to the New Forest.

In the past year the Squadron has undergone a complete change of command. We have a new Squadron Leader, Major S. V. Gilbart-Denham, a new second in command, Captain J.W.M. Ellery, 3 new troop leaders with Lt. Adderley, Lt. Bruton, Lt. Black and last, but not least, SCM Batey has taken over from Corporal Major Gibbs, who after much service to the regiment has now embarked on a new career outside (Brummy's top scrap metal dealer). We wish him all the best in civilian life. Out of all Troop CoHs we have only CoH York and CoH Allen who have been with the squadron over one year. The newcomers are CsoH Kelly, Collier, Hooper and Slater. The latter who looks after the fluctuating amount of trai nees.

Band Notes

CoH Fletcher doing a commercial for "Bluebell"

With January came a hectic round of Guards Spectaculars as far apart as Newcastle and Paignton, in Devon, where even we were surprised to find ourselves ploughing through two concerts in one day after travelling most of the night straight from an Albert Hall Concert. On February 22nd we held a repeat performance of the BAa R mess concert in the mess at Knightsbridge where the female 'would-be' bandmasters were given a chance to display their musical talents. The concert was followed by a buffet and disco, thus rounding off a pleasant evening for all concerned. Tuesday 22nd April saw the return of the dreaded riding season which continued with the usual early morning trooping and beati ng retreat rehearsal s. Th is was imrrediately followed by the Garter Ceremony at Windsor, after which we were all suffering from sunstroke and sore feet. On the 18th and 19th June the band and Quadrille attended the Lincolnshire Show and by mid-day on the 20th we were half way to Paris for an unforgettable trip.which is fully described on Page 21.

Upon our return from Paris we commenced the band season proper. Following our touch-down from Paris we had time to re-Ioad and transport ourselves and our instruments to St. James's Park for our first concert of the season. On the following Saturday those members of the band not engaged at St. James's Park found themselves involved in the Wembley Pageant which proved an even more spectacular event than on previous oc¡ casions. Returning from the East of England Show a small band attended the Centenary celebrations of the Greenwich Observatory at Hurstmonceux Castle, Sussex, which was honoured by the presence of Her Royal Highness Princess Anne. Throughout the season there were many occasions when we had to attend BBC recordings for television and radio and in particular for our own band record called 'Horse of the Year'. As indicated on the reverse of the record sleeve, one piece of rrusic entitled 'The Riding Master' is dedicated to Capt. Jackson.

During a recent concert at Tunbridge Wells, the cornets found themselves calling on their busking talents to the tune of Punjaub after discovering that their music pad was still in London. Fortunately all was well for the evening performance after a Iightning trip, by a member of the band, to retrieve the music from Knightsbridge. The carrying of golf clubs by band members was a common sight about the numerous Show fields during the season, and in particular the sight of our Band Corporal Major practising golf swings during any intervals, however short. This was, of course, in aid of the forthcoming band tournament which was held at the Royal Eastbourne Golf Course during our week's stay in Eastbourne. The tournament cup was finally won by Musc. 'Jock' Sandell who beat all other participants, including the Band Corporal Major, despite his concentrated practice during the preceding few months. The usual week at Victoria Embankment Gardens and Bournemouth were made qu ite varied th is year by the unusual 17


amount of 'cabaret' acts wh ich seemed to appear from no-where as soon as the music began. During the Bournemouth week one piece of music entitled The Stripper' had to be cut off while we were only half way through in view of the enthusiasm of the cabaret 'star'. On our return from Bournemouth, we had a short break after wh ich we prepared for the visit to the Regiment in Detmold for the farewell celebrations. The celebrations included a march from Lothian Barracks into the town and back again at a cracking pace which was almost the downfall of us all. The highlight of the visit was a Beating Retreat performance wh ich included Corporal Major Marsden playing 'Last Post' from the top

of a water tower, and LCpl Morris performing 'Amazing Grace'. After many rehearsals, and the moving of numerous search lights by the RCM, this proved to be a most spectacular and successful farewell. The mess concert involved some of the more well-known 'characters' of the regiment doing their own thing to one of the latin american numbers. Also there was a performance of The Battle of Waterloo complete with church bells, cannons, marching bands, gun fire, sword fights and bodies just to add to the atmosphere. Bodies were also seen on the football pitch during the Mess -v- Band football match. The Band lost 5-4, but we did put one of the opposition in hospital and

caused painful injuries to at least on, other of them Our visit to the regiment ended with, long and tedious trip back to R.A. F Lyneham in one of the infamous Her cules, only to be met by the smiling fact of one of Her Majesty's Customs am Excise men who was about to make c thorough search of everything in sight. With another summer season over, Wt prepared ourselves for the move to Wine! sor. We wish to welcome all new member, to the Band and to those who have left we wish much success in civilian life.

WO's and NCO's Mess The year started for the mess caterer by the manufactu re of duck boards for the well known forthcoming round of Hohne, Soltau and Hohne. On 22nd January we entertained our partner German tank regi ment, 213 Panzer Battalion, to a formal mess dinner. The fact that the date coincided with that chosen by SACEUR to exercise his troops in Europe on Ex ACTIVE EDGE only seemed to enhance the occasion. We, in our mess dress and they, in their combat kit, with instructions that they had to return to their barracks by 2359 hours or turn into 'pumpkins'. Needless to say they broke this curfew and a very good evening was had by all. We were lucky enough to be visited on 6th March by Colonel H.D.A. Langley, MBE, who once more had lunchtime drinks with us and was, as usual, in good form. SCMs Wardell and Juleff were regally dined out on 9th April, SCM Wardell leaving to become an Estate Warden at Osnabruck (in fact we see him often; some still think he is an SCM in the Regiment!) and SCM Juleff has disappeared to look after the Officers Mess at Camp Headquarters, Northern Ireland. The Mess - well at least two #1irds of it - moved to Suffield to set up shop during our Battle Group training in Canada. Old haunts and old 'friends' were rediscovered by some, and all members were pleased to see the BATUS TQ very much in evidence, RQMC Stan "The Man" Deaville. 18

We were once again lucky enough to entertain the Colonel of the Regiment in the Mess on 2nd July. He was in remarkable form and spoke to most mess merrbers. This was his last visit to the Regiment in BAOR, his programme being as before, only this time he took mid-morning coffee with some members' wives in the mess. Our Entertainment Committees have provided the usual high standard of entertainment throughout the year. However, the Committee which started its duties in July, led by SCM Lawson and his PEC, SQMC Hutchings, can be said quite fairly to have surpassed all else. Their succession of Holiday and Scheme nights, Cheese and Wine, and Bar-B-Que, and so-called quiet nights, were a huge success and enjoyed by all those who participated. Our thanks go to him and all his committee for their hard work. The outstanding formal occasion of the year was, without doubt, the Farewell Ball held in the Gymnasium of Lothian on 19th September. SCM Reynolds and ORSQMC Cherrington and the Committee, thanks to CsoH Daysmith. and Sherwin, were able to transform the Gymnasium into something close to a fantasy world. The Buffet, as usual organised by our very own SQMS Macdonald was fantastic. So great a success was the Ball in fact, that at 0830 hours the following morning some members were still at breakfast with their wives in Ball gowns. On the 24th September the Regiment held its Farewell Party. The Mess kicked

off with a Cocktail Party, which due to circumstances completely beyond our con trol was involuntarily extended by an hour (and which, incidentally, got the PMC and Mess Caterer into a bit of a flap about the Cocktail situation - even buckets of water were considered, I believe!) followed by the Band Beating the Retreat and a reduced Quadrille of four remount rides from Knightsbridge, which was followed by a continuation of the movement in the Mess and dancing to the small hours to a smoky, bubbly disco. The Band, on their last VISit to us in BAOR, were their usual benevolent selves, although they seemed to have taken the hint from the London Symphony Orchestra and did more working than drinking! They entertained a packed mess on 28th September to a really excellent Concert which was topped off by a marvellous rendering of The Battle of Waterloo. Few, if any, mess members would have thought it possible to produce such a display in the Mess. Band Cpl Major Walthew and his Band are congratulated on a really outstanding performance wh ich will be remembered for years to come by the mess members who were lucky enough to be present. For each of their four visits to us, 3 to BAOR and one to Armagh (which caused a few musical hearts to flutter!) their standard of music has always been of the highest, and the way in which they join in the social life of the mess can only be described as iinimitable' or 'indescribable'.


With,n 3 days in September 1975 we were",'ted, in order of visits (not seniorIty I, oy the Brigade Commander, the Lieutenant Colonel Commanding Household Cavalry and the General Officer Commanding 4th Division. In fact on 18th September in the mess for drinks at lunchtime were all three VIPs (two by design, one by accident) and the Commanding Officer - there were no corners to hide in that day! In October we handed over the mess to The Blues and Royals and similarly took over the mess in Combermere. We soon got into the swing of English beer again. SCM Hatto and his PEC SOMC Cummins have produced some very entertaining evenings and some excellent Saturday night dinners, in close co-operation of course, with t~le Master Gyp. We held our Welcome Home Ball under the direction of ROMC Cornish. We danced to a five piece group and our own disco by LCoH Belcher. We dined magnificently due once again to the skills of SOMS MacDonald and his Merry Men. The Ball was attended by Mess Members, past and present, and by many Honorary Members. Our thanks go to the ROMC and his Committee for all their hard work, and an enjoyable evening was had by all. We heard the sad news on Friday 12th December 1975 that Mr. Jack Eason had passed away. His face will be missed at Brick Hanging on Friday 19th December 1975 by all. We will, however, be pleased to see Ex RCM John Jenkins Hanging the Brick on that day. He has also agreed to become our Brick Hanger. We offer our

commiserations to Mr. Alfie Hyland, the next senior ex RCM to Jack Eason, who, through illness could not take up this honpured appointMent. 1976 is almost upon us and, as such, a year when the mess will be extremely under-strength due to Regimental commitments. We can, however, ensure any members serving away from the Regiment or any ex-member a welcome should they come and see us at any time. Any ex-member who has not got an Honorary membership card should write to the Regimental Corporal Major giving (if necessary) dates of service and rank held. Due to the turbulence this past year, our welcomes and farewells are restricted solely to senior ranks, as is the promotion stakes. We have said farewell to SOMC Bayliss, CoH Anderson and CoH Norman, who have left us for civilian life, and also to CoH Mcivor, but he had another change of heart and re-enlisted. SOMC Kelly has been promoted to W02 and posted to the Junior Leaders Regiment RAC along with CoH Monaghan. W02 Payne was posted to the D & M School on promotion to WOl and appointed Regimental Corporal Major. W02 Batey, CsoH Bishop and Collier have left us for a mount at Knightsbridge,CsoH Saunders and Richards have gone to Recruiting Staffs to try and alleviate the current manpower shortage. The disappearance of W02s Wardell and Juleff have been covered elsewhere in this article. We have welcomed CoH Shaw back from the Guards Depot, and also said farewell and congratulated him on

his posting back to the Household Cavalry Squadron and promotion to SOMC. We welcome CsoH Nicklin, Bunyan and Goodyear back from the Mounted Regiment, CoH Newens from the wilds of Soltau, and Co H Pearson from the outback of Castlemartin. CoH Daraz has returned from the Junior Leaders Regiment at Bovington and CoH Redford from the Guards Depot. Gso H George and Knowles 276 have returned from recruiting, and CoH Mead decided that civilian life was a little bit too cold. SOMe McGloughlin has returned from Sandhurst after being aWlY from the Regiment for 5 years or so. We also welcome back CoH Keeys from the Training Regiment at Catterick, and congratulate him on his promotion to Staff Corporal. Last but by no means least, we olso welcome SCM Reynolds back from the Household Cavalry Squadron. SOMCs Lawson and Hatto are congratulated on their promotion to W02 and appointment as SCM, also congratulations to CoH Leighton on his pro,motion to Staff Corporal and appointment as SOMC. We also congratulate LCsoH Bourne, Denton and Turner, on their promotion to CoHo The Senior Members of the mess are: RCM Young, SCM Mitcheson (B Sqn), ROMC Cornish, SCM Reynolds (C Sqn), TOMC Johnson, SCM Lawson (A Sqn), and SCM Hatto (HQ Sqn).

Regimental Sport BASKETBALL The Regiment took part in the Detmold Garrison Basketball League during the last few months in BAOR however, unfortunately due to the inability of other units to produce teams, the league was terminated. Since returning to England, however, the Regiments team has achieved an unbeaten record in two areas. In the London District Basketball League the team has beaten the RA Depot, Woolwich and the 1st Battal ion Grenad ier Guards, both convincingly. In the 3 Division Basketball Championships 22 Eng Regt.

and 32 Lt Regt. RA were both defeated, again by a fair margin. There are high hopes for a win in the London District Championships in January. The team is made up of RCM Young, SOMC Hutchings SSgt McOuilkin, LCpl Knight, Tprs Lawrence, Dove, Vince, Woods and Webster.

SQUASH The marked improvement in the standard of the Regimental Squash Team was largely due to the valuable coaching of SSgt McOuilkin. The team was unlucky in only getting as far as the quarter-final

of the 4 Division Squash Championship after the number two had to drop out thus losing the match 3-2. Once back in Windsor the team was entered in three competitions and has so far achieved very good results. One match of the Army Inter Unit Competition has been played and won. In the London District Championships the team is through to the semifinal having beaten two other teams and in the London District League the only match played so far has been lost to the RA Depot. The following have represented the Regiment. Lt. Col. S.C. Cooper, Surg. 19


Capt. Goodson-Wicks, SQMC McLoughlin, Sgt. Dyckhoff and Cfn Adam. SSgt McQuilkin is to be congratulated on having played in the Army Squash team.

ATHLETICS This summer has witnessed a welcome revival for the Regiment on the athletic

LCpl Johnson in the 4 x 1500 metres at Bonn field. Various commitments have prevented us from participating seriously in previous years. This factor has been of considerable hinderance in the actual abilities of the team, however, the enthusiasm and effort of all those participating have helped considerably to overcome the shortcomings in that direction.

The athletic year began with a Regimental Sports day held in the middle of April, this being the only suitable date as The Regiment was moving to Canada five days later and the Brigade mee .ng was five days after our return. This was a most successful day. All events, save the Long Distance, were closely con es ed, the latter belonged, as they did -or he rest of the summer, to Lcp Joh 0 . A Squadron won narrowly from C Sq amon. We had fortunately chosen a be I de"" and the two bars provided welco re!ie' between events. Mrs. Cooper ry presented the prizes and stood p to the resounding three c '* s ceived. The Regimental mee'o with a very reasonable Brigade meeting held 0 unfortunate that 3rd Ro ment were having an excep io did however have a tre _ d with 35 Engineer Reg-ment . s beat us by winning the last relay even. e Regiment thus came a ery creditable third. Lcpl Johnson mus iJ9'Iin be mentioned as he won the 1500 metres and 5000 metres by irty and fifty yards respectively. The Tug of War team also came third after some strange scoring rate was introducea; we did however, beat every team that entered! The Brigade meeting led on to the

Divisional meeting three weeks later. Here we were unfortunate to lose several of our teams on various courses, which inevitably led to several of the team competing in two events. Considering all the factors we did not disgrace ourselves and next year, hopefully, will not find large Signals Regiments with nothing better to do than train continuously. This has been an enjoyable season. We have a great deal of potential, I only hope that with the return to Windsor we can maintain the enthusiasm that has been built up.

Tpr Boots putting the Shot at the Regimental Sports Day

ARMY RI FLE ASSOCIATION MEETING On the strength of experience gained at Bisley last year when he shot for the Guards Depot team Lt. P. V. NaylorLeyland decided early in 1975 that the Regiment ought to be represented in this year's competition. It was intended that a team be chosen from the latent wealth of talent in the Regiment to compete on equal terms with other major units. As it turned out few potential shots were made available from their squadrons and eventually out of a squad of seven men four entered the competitions as individuals. Training prior to the meeting was undertaken at the Guards Depot in conjunction with other teams from 1st Bn Welsh Guards, 1st Bn Coldstream Guards, 1st Bn Grenadier Guards and the Guards Depot itself. Much experience was gained from working alongside our brown-bereted brothers and we were particu larly fortunate in being advised by Captain Norman

Allred, SASC, from Pirbright. However, our two weeks training prior to the two weeks worth of competitions unfortunately did not put us in quite the same league as certain dedicated infantry regiments whose continuous past practice over several years casts a new meaning on the word 'enthusiasm'. Undeterred, the 'home' team persevered, doing the odd bit of pokey drill and occasionally running round the Depot, much to the amazement of passers-by (who was trying to fool who?). Shooting practises were organised for both SLR and SMG with an occasional pistol shoot on the side, strictly for amusement purposes only. Concentration therefore, was laid on the SLR for the Association, Roupell, Henry Whitehead and Moving Target Match Cups; and on the SMG for the SMG cup. Everyone in

the squad entered the SMG competition, including Tprs Elliott, Timms and Gibson while only Lts. Naylor-Leyland and Harbord, LCpl Parkinson and Cfn Coyle shot for the SLR events. Sadly, no earth-moving results were achieved, ,hough Mr. Naylor-Leyland came closes: to going through to the second stage. Nonetheless, simply because the Regiment was represented at what is an enormous Army competition raised a lot of eyebrows. Many ties with other Regi ments were made and refreshed and most important of all, should a proper full-size team be entered in the future, enough experience has been gained to enable a very fair showing to be produced. The competitions are certainly great fun and enjoyed by all, but for any real hope of success, detailed and lengthy preparations will be vital.


THE BAND IN PARIS .... On arrival in Paris after a rather hectic journey by coach, ship and train, we were met by an official of the show in which we were to take part and put into the custody of a French army c02ch criver who was to be our chauffeur for the trip. His name, we found out, was "George" and his command of the Engl ish language was rather like ours of the French - Nonexistent! However, he was always around when we needed him and not once were we late for anything. The first day's performance was, like the rest of the week, mounted and a long ride for all concerned. It was a wet day and cloaks were the order of the day. The parade that we did that day had a dual purpose inasmuch that, it introduced us all to the Parisi ens and also we took part in a service of remembrance at the Arc de Triorrphe. An interesting factor arising out of the service was that, as the two National Anthems were played, they were al most con Ipletely obi iterated by car horns. We seemed to have caused a rather serious traffic problem around the Arc, especially when we tried to circumnavigate it. Apparently mounted troops are not an everyday problem with French traffic! The second day began with reveille at 0300 hours, (about an hour or so after retiring for most of us as we found that the bars stayed open a Iittle longer there

CANADA May 1975 saw A Squadron back in Alberta, Canada, for the second time, where we hit that heap good medicine in the Hat (Medicine Hat) once again. We heard that two Tests had been cancelled in England and rain also stopped play in Canada. We had a bumper consolation by having two lots of R & R, and by that time we needed a rest from the ever popular "Hat". The cowboy style hit us once again. There was a heavy run on ten gallon hats (mostly empty) and bull-whips - one hopes to be used as souvenirs only. When we finally hit the marsh (Training Area) there was plenty of excitement. Before we hit the first crest we had a few stuck in the mud, LCoH Bella and LCoH Rhodes. LCoH Mayo is reported to

than in England). We climbed out of bed sore and aching from the 4 or 5 hour ride the previous day to the cheering thought that we would probably be riding for twice as long 1I1at day. The rehearsals for the show we were to do took place, as did the show, at the Tuillerie Gardens and lasted until about 1100 hours at which time we commenced the 30 minute walk back to the Guarde Republique barracks where the horses were being stabled. However, someone in their wisdom decided that the journey time could be reduced if we trotted back. True it was and to the surprise of all concerned, no-one fell off, although there were a few near misses. The evening performances began at 2100 hours and needless to say, the first had its traumatic yet exciting moments. No-one knew how the horses would react in a floodlit arena and everything seemed to be going well when, all of sudden the mount of Lcpl Morris shied at a shadow. The horse behind ridden by Musn Ely decided that it was time to leave the formation and ended up (with its rider) in the middle of the arena on its own. Fortunately the rest of the show passed without incident. Naturally enough the horse had its name taken. Appropriatel y it was called Rodeo! The rest of the week's performances passed without too many mishaps, apart

from the new Drumhorse that we were using called "Claudius". He seemed to take an instant dislike to the Musical Ride, as for every performance he attempted to turn about or generally mess around when they started their display. Full credit must go to his rider LCoH Harman, the Band's senior drummer, who never faltered even during Claudius's wildest moments. The whole of the show, which as well as the Band and the Musical Ride included the Musical drive of the Royal Artillery and the Mounted Band of the same Regiment (An hereditary title only - they don't actually ride) were all entertained at a champagne reception by the President of the Paris Council, which we found was the French equivalent to a Lord Mayor, at the Hotel de Ville. We were also taken for a boat trip down the Seine one afternoon with free beer provided. • We were accommodated in rather delapidated French Army barracks where we also had to eat, which proved too much for more than a few, as their diet was not quite what we were used to and needless to say the 3 or 4 hours on horseback did not aid digestion. And so it was a not healthy band that started its overnight journey back to London after the last performance.

1975 STYLE have said that he only stopped for a brew which took 3 days. Mr. Hamilton only lost sight of us. At twenty miles range it is not surprising. Mr. Cayler thought that the map he had been given was a picture of Bing Crosby. Like him the face was covered with lines. When serious training finally began, we found that we had some excellent crews and the shooting was of a very high standard, even from our SHO Troop headed by Major S. V. Gilbart-Denham and "where are we now" Captain Joli. CiS 1C (Mr. CaYler, LCoH Renton and Tpr Bray) never did get out of that bog so they had to be content brewing coffee while the other two tanks got on with the job.

cise a little peturbed when they found out they had over-ordered on beer, but showing great determination, the problem was soon solved and SOMC Hatto soon had to return for more. CoH Willis fell of his tank after three days and hurt his back and while in hospital nearly died of worry thinking about how the Squadron was getting on without him. Altogether, the combination of hard work, successful training and enough R & R ensured a very enjoyable time for all.

The Squadron Echelon started the exer¡ 21


THE HANDSOME GIANTS OF THE HORSE GUARDS

Whenever we see those enormous men keeping guard over the arcana of pipec1ay at Whitehall, and pacing up and down in all the gorgeous panoply of steel breastplates and seven league boots we irresistibly admire their looks. No doubt their buckskins do credit to the tailor who built them but as an aotnal substantive part of our forces, of what use are the Household Cavalry? We have nine hundred of these giants, and another hundred officers to command them. They draw nearly a hundred thousand a year from the national purse in pay alone, and perhaps another fifty thousand in general expenses. They occupy three large barracks at Regent's Park at Windsor and at Knightsbridge, and they have 700 horses to ride upon. But where is their utility? What have they ever done or what is there the smallest probability that they ever will do? We believe that we could count on the fingers of a single hand all the officers of these three Regiments who have ever smelt gunpowder burnt in battle, and if we mistake not, the proportion of men who have been under fire is still smaller. For fifty years they have never left the country, but have alternated between Windsor and

London, with their most arduous duty the task of escorting the Sovereign and the Right Honourable the Lord Mayor when he rides in state. But so severe are these duties deemed, together with the minor obligation of guarding the obstinate citadel of the dual government which Mr. Cardwell seems powerless to overthrow, that each Regiment in turn spends a whole year at Windsor, doing absolutely nothing in order, no doubt, that the men may in that purer air recruit their giant frarres after the enervating and exhaustive labours of their London life. The accoutrements of the force are so weighty, and the men themselves are so heavy that ordinary horses cannot carry them at a reasonable speed, and the lighter troops are of necessity employed to carry despatches, or perform such errands as require a maximum speed of more than six miles an hour. They have not been in battle for half a century, and it would be an act of shocking cruelty to expose them to the fire of modem arms of precision. It is of course clear that for executing a strategic manoeuvre their crawling pace would render them almost useless. Their very size is an emense element of weakness; they would present

an easy mark, and they would be likely to cumber the hospitals, for overgrown men are rarely of hardy constitution. But it is useless to speculate on their performances abroad when it is certain that they will stop at home. They are not allowed or likely to be allowed to leave England. We have then to consider whether there is any sufficient reason for retaining the Household Cavalry as part of the standing army of the country. There is no court in Europe in which there is so little public show of grandeur as our own, yet there is none in which three regiments, unfit for foreign service, are maintained solely for a dis play, which is never made except on the rare occasion of a Royal review. A hurried march to York would be utter defeat to the Household Cavalry. They cannot even perform the duty of escorting her Majesty from the Great Western Railway Station to Buckingham Palace. The Queen's pace is too much for these great tax-eaters, and we are informed that a detachment of Lancers of Hussars is consequently kept at the Kensington Barracks in order to relieve the Household Cavalry from such hard work.

NORWAY 1975 My trip to Norway this year was typical of the unsung adventure training schemes that are carried on continuously in the Army. Our ostensible purpose was to run a base camp for a party of schoolboys from Prince Rupert School in Rinteln. Major Stan Edwards, someti me Officer Commanding 114 Provost Company in Detmold, had offered his services to the school and, as an acknowledged expert in this field, although without paper qualifications, he set about organising the trip. Money was cadged or browbeaten out of many sources, but it was noted that organisations such as the Army Youth Service, who had originally proposed the expedition, became remarkably unenthusiastic when they were actually taken up on their idea. However, the Royal Military Police triumphed where others had failed, and a large quantity of food, tents and other equipment was assembled.

I was a late entry to the team, being asked to join only two days before the departure date. I have spent a great deal of the time wondering whether they wanted me or the DM300.00 that all the Army personnel had to shell out. I suspect the latter. Dear Reader, you will be wondering what we were going to do in Norway. It is summed up in one word -'Glacier'. This may not be very forthcoming of me but this was all I was told and I brooded on it for two long days. I drew up an ancient rucksack from the sports store and filled it with thick socks, chunky sweaters and dirty books (you see I am an old hand). I polished my bootsDirectly Moulded Sole, signed out a sleeping bag and laid in bottles of brandy. On the second day the leader himself, wearing a grizzled beard, arrived for lunch and briefed me. "Norway - been

there before? - Ice work - get yourself some tights!" I didn't.

The next morning at six o'clock I was waiting at the barrack gate with a mound of kit. An improbable-looking blue Bedford drew up and I disappeared over the tailboard and into another world. Breakfast was a bottle of beer, pushed at me by a fearsome object in a woolly tartan bobble-hat who turned out to be a lance corporal in the Royal Mil itary Pol ice. Later we stopped at the 'Blue Lagoon', well known to veterans of Soltau, and had a quick snack. All day we drove North, past Hamburg over the Kiel Kanal, over the Danish border, and on. What a change from Germany! The country swarmed with pretty girls, who smiled and waved as if it was VE Day all over again. The sex-shops bu ilt to catch the German traffic were deserted and the


very atmosphere seemed warmer. Well, it was a hot day. In the evening, we arrived at Lokken where we camped on the beach. In spite of the fact that people are allowed to drive over the beach, camping is forbidden and this was kindly pointed out to us by about a dozen people. If the Danes have a fault it is nosey ness on a grand scale. One man actually enquired about our 'sanitary arrangements' and seemed quite worried until we waved a shovel at him. Later on car-loads of the youth and beauty of Jutland parked as close as they dared and gazed at us for hours at a time as we cooked, washed and dug out our toenails. Only small boys would speak, attracted perhaps by our football, that international passport to goodwill, but, enquiries for Big Sisters were misunderstood and they fled. We arrived early at Hi rtshals the next day but, not having booked, had to spend the whole day waiting for the ferry. This was easi Iy the hottest day of the whole trip and was passed in swimming and sunbathing. We began to get blase about the women and in the afternoon discovered that rare th ing, a Scandinavian pub. I have no memory of the ferry crossing itself because there was a bar, conveniently at the top of the gang plank at wh ich the enti re party stayed for four hours. Some nightmarish recollection of two soldiers doing a Highland Fling d0wn the gangplank has fl itted across my mind, but I have dismissed it. Our driver, Corporal Summerfield R EME had remained resolutely sober and we roared off towards Oslo, the laden trailer bucking dangerously behind. All slept, and in spite of a stop for tea, soon the driver slept too! South of Lillehammer, after several hours on the road, we five in the back were reading or looking out when suddenly the world went mad. The'Mayfair' which I had just opened flew out of my lap and a ten-man pack of Compo flew in. In two seconds our gross of eggs was reduced to about six. From under a pile of tentage and MFO boxes a voice shrieked "Out - get out!" Although we had mounted the bank and tilted over at an angle of forty five degrees the driver managed to halt on a level patch. We dismounted quickly to inspect the damage, which, apart from the eggs was negligible, and we motored on rather more soberly to Lillehammer. This town, where the Green Howards fought so gallantly in 1940, was where we came up against the 'carbonader'

which is not a Norwegian regiment but a sort of whale-meat hamburger served with a 'side' of what is known in Yorkshire as 'mushy peas', we also encountered the 'pay-as-you-enter' lavatory and Norwegian lavatory rolls, which have a diameter of about two feet. By this time I had discovered where we were bound for. It was the Svartisen Glacier,some fifteen miles from Mo-I-Rana and lying right on the Arctic Circle. The 'snout' which we were to explore and use as a base is most interesting because of the speed and distance of its movements. It is retreating at the rate of six metres a year, yet other snouts of the same icefield are advancing, and in the eighteenth century this particular one moved forward over four kilometres and obliterated two farms which lay in its path. Since the middle of the nineteen-fifties the area has been extensively surveyed by Professor Wilfrid Theakston of Manchester University and the results are fascinating even to a non-geologist. He has become a well known figure in the area as a result of his annual visits to measure the movement of the ice, and a part of the path up to the glacier has been named Theakstongate in recognition of his work. We arrived in Mo-I-Rana on the third day after leaving Detmold and immediately 'made our number' at the tourist office. Having laid in a few more supplies, we set off for Svartisdalen which was to be our base camp. Once off the main road the tarmac ceased and we were amused to find ourselves driving along the grandlynamed E6, which is little more than a track in spite of a very heavy volume of traffic. To a newcomer the suspension bridges across the innumerable fast-flowing rivers are rather worrying - they ripple visibly as you drive across. The chief family in Svartisdalen are the Svartisdal family. Up until the early part of this century there were no surnames in Norway, people being known as, for instance, Anton Antonsson (Anton son of Anton). This became chaotic and a law was passed requiring everybody to have a surname. The logical move was for people to take the names of the area that they inhabited. The Svartisdals lay claim to the whole of the ice-field and the old father, Anton, calls himself the 'King of the Svartis'! He spoke English well, having farmed in Minnesota as a young man, at a time when emigration from Norway was high. The major part of his efforts now are directed to tourism as the farming is really only subsistence farming. In the winter the valley is snowed in, although

nowadays a snowplough keeps the road open, and the staple diet is salt-fish. Professor Theak ston spent two months at the farm one winter during which time fresh meat only appeared once. In summer the valley is filled with tourists, many of whom have wooden summer houses. We found the Norwegians very active people who enjoy camping and walking in the mountains up to an advanced age. The scenery is spectacular, steep mountains with multitudes of streams and waterfalls which drain off the melting snow. Wild flowers including orchids, are everywhere and there is a considerable amount of wild-life. The drawbacks are the rather marshy ground and the armies of mosquitoes and giant horse-flies which inflict a very painful bite. The rivers are filled with trout and there does not seem to be any control over fishing. To reach the snout of the glacier from the camp, over which a small Union Flag now flew, we took the tourist boat up the lake and then climbed alongside a fast flowing river over rock which had been ground down by the passage of the ice. This path was fairly steep but was followed every day in the short (JulySeptember) tourist season by dozens of tourists of all ages. The alternative to the boat was to take a swampy and ill-defined track around the lake. The school party arrived the next day and after their initial shock, amused themselves by playing 'ducks and drakes'on the lakeshore. This became boring, so they switched to hurling stones at a buoy, then at a startled Norwegian in a dinghy, and finally, at each other. To restore peace we lent them our football. As soon as the school party were established we set out on our first expedition, leaving one soldier to look after the camp. We had spent a couple of days learning how to use crampons, and dumping some supplies further up the snout, which we now attempted to climb. It looked deceptively flat from the bottom, and, remembering the Athabaska glacier in Canada, I felt sure that we would have no difficulties in getting up it and crossing the ice-field at the top, a distance of about twelve miles. Once on the far side we intended to dump more rations, in preparation for a round trip of the ice-field. Just as we thought that we were well on the way, our problems began. The snout was crisscrossed by a series of crevasses varying from one inch to fifty feet across. Looking over the edges of the big ones, one could see clear down two or three hundred feet to bare rock. There

23


was a constant roaring of streams rushing 'th rough caverns measureless to man' under the ice, and occasionally groaning and splintering noises as huge blocks detached themselves and fell into the depths below. In places the crevasses were spanned by snow bridges, but at that time of year they can be treacherous and we had to try to pick our way around them. Later impatience overruled common sense and we took a few risks. We had roped-up at an early stage and felt that this was justified in view of the weather which began to deteriorate. To camp among such crevasses in summer would be courting disaster, so we pressed on to the bottom of the first ice-fall and found a relatively level patch among the great lumps of snow-covered ice. Mist came down, reducing visibility to about ten feet, so we zipped ourselves into our sleeping bags and waited. We remained there thirty-six hours, which was most frustrating, especially as we had only cOJered about one kilometer from the edge of the ice. The only evidence of life were the frozen corpses of lemmings, which lay allover the ice, and in the morning I was woken by some bird (the legendary shitehawk?) which flew low over our tents croaking mournfully. In the distance we could hear a waterfall crashing down the mountain beside us. This is a period, during any expedition when books become important and those we brought soon became dog-eared with use.

When the fog cleared we pressed on up the ice-fall, working our way around and between the peaks of ice which had been forced up by the continuous movement of the glacier. Although the snout is retreating at the edges because of melting, there is also a strong flow downwards and this causes tremendous pressure against the hard rock of the mountains which surround the ice-field. Above the first fall we reached a small plateau with less fissures than before, and from there worked our way onto the moraine at the side. At this level there was considerably more snow than we had expected. The rrelt this year came very late, and it was obvious that our progress would be far slower than we had hoped for. Two most important items, which we did not have, were skis and snowshoes. Since we were coming to the end of our three day allotment of rations, we dumped the food, and some equipment, at the top of the snout among rocks on the moraine, and started back. This time we went down the mountain alongside the glacier. The journey which had taken two and a half days was done in four hours, with several halts for brew-ups. Our first experience was typical of the whole period. On our next expedition we cI imbed the second highest peak on the field, which involved a bit of scrambling among the rocks, but we never achieved our original aim which had been to traverse the whole area. The school party

did manage to do quite a lot of researcbut were hampered by lack of equipmer: and foreknowledge. However the groun: has now been opened and I hope the: others will benefit from our mistakes. The final expedition ended in nea' tragedy when one of the team I WCtS leading fell into a fast-flowing river anc was nearly swept away. Thanks to th: courage of one of our military policemer he was saved. In the excitement I slippec off my pack which promptly slid into thE river and was borne away by the current As an indication of what might have happened to the man who fell in, the onl, item retrieved from my kit was a packet of dried beans which was washed up ter :<i:ometers down river. The only comparable event was when a Danish girl was spotted from the lorry wearing only a pair of jeans. The vehicle nearly turned over in the rush to have a look. On the return journey we spent a day in Oslo, from where we took the ferry to Frederikshavn in Denmark. This was a pleasant, twelve hour trip in an old fashioned ferry, marred. only by the exorbitant price charged for breakfast. At the German border I shaved off my beard, and prepared, not without regret, to re-enter the world of trade-training and handovers. But first, a spot of leave!

BROOM

Miss Broom who died two years ago made a bequest to the Regimental Association of ÂŁ200 which has gone to The Life Guards Charitable Trust. Miss Broom and her Mother were the official photographers to the Household Cavalry and Brigade of Guards from 1904 - 1939. The accompanying two photographs are examples of their work. A Regimental bear, the property of the 2nd Life Guards, escaped from a railway van at King's Cross on 23rd September, and started off to explore the neighbourhood, possibly in search of a certain motor omnibus driver. He was followed by a crowd of over a thousand people, some of whom heroically belaboured the poor beast from behind, thus keeping him on the trot. The bear took refuge in a public house. fell a victim to a 'police trap', and fashionable terminated his happy holiday in a police station.


Alfred Loyles Eason

MBE The Association, with deep regret, have to announce the death in December 1975 of "Jack" Eason who had been an active member of our Committee for 30 years. "Jack" Eason was born in March 1894 and joined the 2nd Regiment of Life Guards at Windsor in April 1912. He served with his Regiment in the BEF from August 1914 until February 1919, and was promoted Regimental Corporal Major on 1st February 1934. He was discharged in March 1939 but rejoined for Service in the Second World War and served as RCM of the Household Cavalry Training Regiment from September 1939 until 1944. Whilst RCM of the Regiment he was awarded "half a brick" medal for duties performed at the ceremony on an occasion when Mr. Van Mierlo was delayed in arrival by bad weather. Since 1961 he has carried out the duties of "Brick Hanging" each year at the commencement of the Christmas festivities. Our sincere condolences are extended to his wife and family in their great loss.
